Five Presentations Will Highlight Findings from the XIPERE® Pivotal Phase 3 Program
VAUGHAN, ON, July 6, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- Bausch + Lomb Corporation (NYSE/TSX: BLCO) ("Bausch + Lomb"), a leading global eye health company dedicated to helping people see better to live better, today announced that five presentations highlighting data from the XIPERE® (triamcinolone acetonide injectable suspension) pivotal Phase 3 program will be presented at the American Society of Retina Specialists (ASRS) 40th annual scientific meeting, which will take place in New York from July 13-16, 2022. The presentations will include a new post-hoc analysis of the pivotal Phase 3 trial (PEACHTREE) evaluating outcomes following treatment with XIPERE® in patients with macular edema associated with chronic uveitis.
"At this year's ASRS annual meeting, we look forward to sharing these data with retina specialists on XIPERE®, which we launched commercially in March," said Christina Ackermann, president, Ophthalmic Pharmaceuticals, Bausch + Lomb. "We have received great interest in XIPERE® from the eye care professional community since then, and we appreciate the opportunity that the ASRS meeting affords us to continue to provide valuable clinical insights on the product, as well as on its novel use of the suprachoroidal space to help treat patients with macular edema associated with uveitis."
Following is a complete list of titles and lead authors for each of the presentations:
XIPERE® is a triamcinolone acetonide injectable suspension for suprachoroidal use for the treatment of macular edema associated with uveitis, a form of eye inflammation. XIPERE® is the first and only treatment to be approved in the United States for delivery via the suprachoroidal space and the first and only uveitic macular edema treatment to demonstrate clinical efficacy with a BCVA (Best Corrected Visual Acuity) primary endpoint. XIPERE® is administered via the suprachoroidal space using the SCS Microinjector®. The SCS Microinjector® offers unprecedented access to the back of the eye where sight-threatening disease often occurs and provides targeted delivery to potentially improve efficacy and compartmentalization of medication.
XIPERE® (triamcinolone acetonide injectable suspension) for suprachoroidal use is a corticosteroid indicated for the treatment of macular edema associated with uveitis.
Patients should be monitored following injection for elevated intraocular pressure. See Dosage and Administration instructions in full Prescribing Information.
